How much does your weed cost?

by dope smoker on June 2, 2010

I remember in London, skunk cost in the region of £120-£200 an ounce (that’s ~28 grammes) depending on the quality. That’s £5 a gram. Approximately.

An eighth would be about £30.

Hash would be a different scale, normally cheaper. Sometimes as cheap as £60 for an ounce.

So £50 doesn’t get you that much gear in the UK, if you are buying skunk.

‘Normal’ weed I have paid anything from £70 to £120 an ounce for better quality Thai stuff when it is about.

Now I live in Spain and pay 2 euros a gram for lovely buds grown in the sun.

I can still remember my first dealer, he had scales (of course) but used pennies to weigh out quarters and eighths.

What do you pay for weed?

    Here in Canada, I get half an ounce of sativa/indica blend kush (fresh picked buds) for $140 per half ounce. I also get pure sativa lebanese blonde hash for the same price as kush. That comes out to $10 a gram Canadian. But I get cut some deals once in a while.

    weed(skunk) is a piss take price now,im in the uk a place called DEESIDE in a county called FLINTSHIRE,some dealers are are chargeing £20 for as little as 1.2 grams(cheese)others are doing 1.5 an others are doing 2.0grams(no matter what the quality of the bud) an as for the oz there going at around £250-270,an it was only a few year ago people were only paying £120-150 for a oz but since it went from a class c to a class b the prices have shot up,i suppose it is cause the dealers are taking more risk with it being a class b now,an as for the hash it is crap an dose nothing but give you a head ache,good knows whats init for it to taste an smell that bad i never smoke it unless im visiting amsterdam,an hash is very expensive out there’12 euro a gram i paid for some silver mist,the cheapest was zero zero at 6 euros a gram,soft black was about the same but it not so strong.

    In Manchester the standard is £20 for 1/8, about £150 for an ounce sounds about right near here but you have to be more careful with some of the scum that attempt to rip you off. . . I know some pretty generous guys though, I’m lucky my boyfriend’s brother grows xD

    Prices in the UK are just f-ing ridiculous. Back in 2003 you could get an Oz of High Grade, stuff that would give you resin lips, was sticky as hell, actually smelt and smoked like proper Cannabis, for £140.. 120 if you knew the guy. These days it’s £200+ for “high grade”, stuff that isn’t actually A+ anyway. People have gotten really f-ing greedy, it’s all about money and not about quality of the smoke. I hate this country so god damn much.

     Yup, 20/25 pounds a gram in Guernsey and almost impossible to get hold of bud. You always get hash, normally squidgy black. Rip off, and getting sick of it. Very expensive habit

    I have been paying between £120-145 for spanking haze & cheese. Bone dry. But that’s the price for a fucking half ounce, I’ve been told 9bars have been going in the regions of £950-1100. Round here you’re LUCKY to get £10 a gram, its more £10 for 0.7g..

    The only way to ensure a regular supply of top quality weed is to ‘ditch the dealer and grow your own’.
    My set-up cost £400 and paid for itself after one harvest! Subsequent grows only cost as much as the electricity and compost used, ie. peanuts!

    i agree with this, where I am (portsmouth area) its £10 a gram and quite often 0.8g for a tenner!! but go back a year a tenner would buy you 1.4g every time. But the quality has gone up massively, so the price is sort of justified but sometimes you’ll get the odd standard skunk floating around but its not any cheaper coz they know they can get away with selling it at £10 a gram coz thats what ur already paying.

    Well this sucks, down my area I will get 1.6 (if I’m lucky) and be paying £20 for it…. Usually it’s 1.2 :/ But my dealer used to drop off right to my house (I have known him for years) and now, I have to go between 4-6 miles to pick it up :/ He will only drop for a quarter, which to him is somewhere in the region of 3.8- 4.5 grams… And charge me £40- £45 for it :/ Oh and it’s mainly twig…

    In Spain I can get real good quality Skunk/Cheese like weed 5 grams for £20, In UK its like £10 for almost nothing like a few (two or three)small buds and the rest grass, some do really good skunk/cheese buds in £20 bags that are a more realistic price for what’s in the bag. I have had really good UK market Skunk an in comparison to Spain, Spain is better value although there will be grass in the bag to a larger degree than UK. These are generalisations, I am trying to remember a general rule and imagine sizes, basically my experience is that in Spain you can get more and now way more in weight that in UK for comparable prices, even when you consider extra plant material involved including sticks and twigs. I started smoking cannabis incidentally when it was Class C before it was Class B, in England the strength has increased and weigh gone down on a general level, the change in law and the need too squeeze the same money out of less locations must be linked. I’d really like to get heavier weights and smoke low potency grass versus smoking pure skunk buds and miss out of the tobacco angle totally. I don’t actually need to get that high, I like to be functional if needs be at any moment.
